NASA X: MEDLI NASA X investigates The Mars Science Laboratory Entry, Descent, and Landing Instrument, or (MEDLI). This suite is a set of engineering sensors designed to measure the atmospheric conditions and performance of the Mars Science Laboratory heatshield during entry and descent at Mars. While not part of the core MSL scientific payload, it will provide important information for the design of entry systems for future planetary missions. NASA X had the rare opportunity to film inside the...

IRVE-3 is part of NASA’s Hypersonic Inflatable Aerodynamic Decelerator (HIAD) Project, which aims to provide the agency with a less-expensive and modular means to return space capsules--those carrying cargo from the International Space Station, for instance--to Earth safely despite the high forces and temperatures that act on them during reentry. Doing so could make travel to and from earth orbit far more economical while also providing a tested and certified platform that could be readily...

NASA X: Environmentally Responsible Aviation The aircraft of today are quieter, more efficient and stronger than anyone could have imagined even a few short years ago. Future aircraft will continue this trend and become even more efficient and dependable, reaching unimaginable goals that today's aircraft could never reach. But how will they reach these goals and who is doing the important work to change the way we all fly?

NASA X - Game Changing Technolgies The Game Changing Development Program seeks to identify and rapidly mature innovative/high impact capabilities and technologies for infusion in a broad array of future NASA missions. NASA X explores a new composite cryotank and a revolutionary Exoskeleton, called X1. Both of these game changing technologies will help not only NASA, but people here on Earth.

More than 25 years ago, scientists realized there was a problem with Earth’s thin, protective coat of ozone...it was vanishing. NASA scientists are preparing to send an instrument called SAGE III (Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment) to the ISS. It will monitor and gather valuable information for researchers and scientists.

Follow members of the Environmentally Responsible Aviation team as they conduct a variety of tests on exciting, new aircraft designs that are in the early stages of development. See how these initial designs and ideas are moved through the NASA pipeline from computer drawings and wind tunnel models, all the way to scale-model aircraft and full-scale flights. Each new step brings us closer to flying onboard revolutionary aircraft that are safer, more efficient, and quieter.

Unmanned aircraft are flying right now in the National Airspace System (NAS). Since the early 1990s, unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) have operated on a limited basis in the National Airspace System (NAS). Until recently, UAS mainly supported public operations, such as military and border security operations, but is now rapidly expanding to encompass a broad range of other activities, including aerial photography, surveying land and crops, communications, monitoring forest fires and...

NASA X visits the largest wind tunnel in the world where NASA and Boeing engineers have once again joined forces. Cutting edge research is happening now, helping designers develop new vertical tail technology for large commercial airliners. And, we see how fruit flies are helping researchers design specialized coatings for airplane wings and surfaces.

NASA's Environmentally Responsible Aviation program i s coming to a close. This program is part 2 of our series on this incredibly successful program. New advanced leading edge wing coatings are being developed that will deter bug strikes and help maintain laminar flow over the wings. And, we visit the Ames Research Center to see the last BWB model being tested with NASA's partner Boeing.

The last program in our series on Environmentally Responsible Aviation. NASA is testing leading edge wing coatings to alleviate bug strikes. Using Boeing's EcoDemonstrator aircraft, this new technology may reduce fuel costs in the near future. And finally, NASA puts its PRSEUS  full size composite structure to the test.
